Disappointed Thomas Tuchel reacts after Premier League reject Chelsea’s request to postpone Wolves clash

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has admitted he’s disappointed with the Premier League’s decision to reject Chelsea’s request to postpone Sunday’s Premier League game against Wolves.

Chelsea have been forced to name just six substitutes against Wolves, with two of those being goalkeepers Kepa Arrizabalaga and Marcus Bettinelli.

Speaking after the Premier League’s decision was confirmed, Tuchel told BBC Sport: “I am worried from a medical point of view, we have had four days of consecutive tests.

“How will it stop if we are in a bus together and in meetings. We are disappointed, we are a bit angry.

“We applied to not play and put the situation under control and it was rejected.

“It is very hard to understand it, we are concerned about the health of the players.

“We end up with players who play coming from injuries and we take the risk.”
